Their debut EP, Alright Now, will take you on a journey to simpler times where the sun is shining, the well is strong, and the air is free. For the eleventh consecutive year, award-winning country singer, songwriter, drummer and DJ Lawrence Peterswill be presenting ‘A Day In The Country’ at Chicago’s most beloved venue, The Hideout Inn.
This is a trio with a big sound, featuring hot pickin,’ a swingin’ rhythm section, and tight three-part harmonies—Joel Paterson, Beau Sample, and Alex Hall bring you back to the “Modern” era. Over a decade before he made the move to Music City, Reedy spent several years busking in New Orleans, where he formed his band the Longtime Goners.
Perfect for any occasion, The Modern Sounds are the right fit for all of your listening and dancing needs. 15th Folks, we’ve got another incredible Matinee lined up for you this month! Today, Reedy and the Longtime Goners can be found keeping the locals dancing with their brand of hard-driving country music at Nashville haunts like Betty’s Grill and the American Legion Post 82.
The Modern Sounds are hard to classify, but easy on the ears. Pat Reedy makes honest honky-tonk music for the modern world, mixing twang, blue-collar songwriting, working-class pride, and an unconventional backstory into albums like 2018’s , planting one foot in the territory of his influences while pointing the other toward newer territory.
You can hear Esther Rose on our Chicago Honky Tonk radio station, along with all your local Chicago favorites like The Family Gold. This year, Peters has assembled a line-up of musicians from the entire spectrum of country music.
Performing from early in the afternoon until late in the evening on two stages (the “front porch” and the “backroom”), artists include The Cactus Blossoms , rockabilly trio Three Blue Teardrops [official], Golden Horse Ranch Band, Al Scorch ’s Country Soul Ensemble, Bailey Dee’s new band The Saluda Moonlighters , The Lawrence Peters Outfit and more!
Come see it for yourself on Sunday, May 20th at the Empty Bottle. Bailey Dee Bailey Dee found the rock and roll handbook and reads it right!
Doors open at , so get there early and treat yourself to a free swing dance lesson starting at p.m. Reminding many of Sister Rosetta Tharpe, with the sweetness of Lorrie Collins, and the ferocity of a young Etta James.
